  • 3/4 oz. Dolin sweet vermouth
  • 1/2 oz. parfait amour
  • 2 dashes of orange bitters
  • 2 dashes of absinthe


In a cocktail shaker half filled with ice, combine the Famous Grouse, vermouth, parfait amour, orange bitters and absinthe and shake until well chilled, 20 to 30 seconds. Strain into a martini glass and serve immediately. Serves 1.
